The Blu Gruv repertoire covers a wide variety of easy listening songs to enhance your event’s ambiance. Extending to over 7 hours of music, the repertoire includes Brazilian Jazz and Latin favorites, Big Band standards, a multitude of “Oldie” songs up to current Pop, plus a few other songs that don’t quite fit the usual genre categories.

Musical stylings are true to the original song melodies and are all arranged specifically for fingerstyle guitar. The stylings are unique and are difficult to categorize – some call the stylings ‘light jazz’, others call it ‘chill acoustic’. The arrangements focus on rhythmic vibe and include combinations of bass lines, rhythm chords and lead melodies played simultaneously.

Solo performances include both pure solo guitar as well as guitar with custom rhythm loops created by percussive sounds made on the guitar. Duo performances add a drummer/ percussionist which lifts the energy and groove to a higher level of rhythmic complexity.
